How many times does someone actually ask you, “What’s on your mind?” and then hang around for an answer?
Facebook asks me everyday. It’s true. Every time I log in, there’s a question glaring at me, “What’s on your mind?” and there’s a big textbox waiting for me to type my answer.
Well, Facebook, since you ask me every single day, I’ve decided to tell you what’s on my mind.
First of all, I don’t like the new Timeline. I can’t believe you didn’t give me a choice. I woke up one day and there it was…TIMELINE. Is that the kind of rep you want, someone that changes people’s things without their permission?
Karen Tomas doesn’t like that.
Whew! Now that we have that out of the way, I’ll tell you something else: Oh, then again, maybe I shouldn’t. Knowing you, you’ll share it with two friends and they’ll share it with two friends and well, you know how that goes, pretty soon the whole world will know.
But I can’t help myself, so here goes. The other night, I baked these brownies and they didn’t turn out so well. Sad thing is, they were box brownies. I couldn’t imagine what went wrong.
“Could it have been that we used canola oil instead of vegetable oil?” my husband asked.
“Who knows? Maybe I cracked the egg wrong. Are box brownies finicky?” I questioned.
Or maybe, just maybe, it had something to do with that tiny stamp on the bottom of the box, which, "Oops!" I happen to notice a bit too late. Nothing major just something about an expiration date and the numbers 2011. That just goes to show how often I bake.
My dad loves to bake. Unfortunately, he’s in Pittsburgh. But I do have nice neighbors that bake and they share their goodies. No, Facebook, I will not share their identities with you.
I could go on and on about what’s on my mind, but seriously Facebook, you probably know more about me and your other billions of users than we know about ourselves.
And you like to share, too. I heard it through the grapevine that you might be sharing some user information with advertisers and marketers.
I don’t think the faces in your book are going to “Like” that. After all, without us, wouldn’t you be rather…faceless.
